Crittenden is the  author of the recent cookbook, From a Polish Country Kitchen, co-written with Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Anne Applebaum, (Chronicle Books, 2012).  She is the author three other books: The President’s Secret IMs, a hilarious collection of imaginary online correspondence, originally published on Huffington Post, between President George W.

Her previous book, Amanda Bright @ Home, was the first novel ever to be serialized by the Wall Street Journal (Warner Books, 2003 and 2004). Crittenden also wrote the widely acclaimed and hotly debated non-fiction book What Our Mothers Didn’t Tell Us: Why Happiness Eludes the Modern Woman (Simon & Schuster, 1999; Touchstone 2000), which resulted in Vanity Fair describing Crittenden as one of the most important new thinkers about women and family.

Crittenden blogs regularly for the Huffington Post.
